Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

John Cougar - Jack And Diane

'Jack And Diane' is a 1982 hit song written and performed by American singer-songwriter, John Mellencamp, then performing as "John Cougar".

It appears on Mellencamp's album American Fool. It was chosen by RIAA as one of the Songs of the Century.

The single spent four weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1982, and, to date, is the biggest hit single ever for Mellencamp, especially with its accompanying music video directed by Bruce Gowers

According to Mellencamp, 'Jack And Diane' was written after watching Splendor in the Grass, (a 1961 movie starring Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty). " 'Jack And Diane' was a terrible record to make. When I play it on guitar by myself, it sounds great; but I could never get the band to play along with me. That's why the arrangement's so weird. Stopping and starting, it's not very musical."

Mellencamp has also stated that the clapping wasn't supposed to be included in the finished song. It was recorded with the clapping in order to help keep tempo and then it was to be removed. However, he realized the song didn't work without it.

In the Uk the single got to number 25 in the Singles Chart.
